DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:15 A.M.) – Around midnight, anti-aircraft units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shot down an armed Israeli drone which had conducted numerous sorties in Quneitra province, leading to the death of three SAA soldiers on Friday evening.

The SAA troops were hit by the hostile drone while advancing behind enemy lines near the road between Al-Hamdiyah and Abu Shabta, prompting the Syrian Air Defense Force to open fire and down the Israeli drone over rebel-held territory.

Neither Tel Aviv or Damascus has responded to the mutual aggression yet. Nevertheless, the two countries remain at a state of war since the Israeli Armed Forces occupied much of the Golan Heights over five decades ago

Last month, the SAA also opened fire on an Israeli drone after destroying one in March while Hezbollah captured one in southern Lebanon on Monday.

UPDATE: The SAA did open fire on the drone but it was not downed and managed to fly back into Israel. The three soldiers were killed on the spot, sources confirm. Al-Masdar News would like to apologize for the initial incorrect reporting.

I recently received a Palestine Solidarity Campaign glossy magazine – ‘4 Anniversaries’; but no mention of the extremely important 50th Anniversay of Israel’s treacherous, murderous attack on the USS Liberty in 1967. Are PSC really so thick that they are unaware of it’s significance? If the US public were aware of the full details (see ‘Operation Cyanide’ by Peter Hounam) there would be no more billion dollar handouts to the Apartheid Terror Regime, and no more transferral of state-of-the-art weaponry.
!Que pase! (Oh, silly me; infiltration!).
And read up on the ‘Yinon Plan’.

USS Liberty attack was ordered by Lyndon B. Johnson himself to create a false flag.
Now, about the CraPalestinians, we all remember the PLO actions in the EU : Carlos the Jackal, Black September, they went as far as even bombing a Swissair airliner.
PLO are f*****g terrorist, they’re even banned in Syria and Lebanon, BTW, it wasn’t even Israelis that ousted them from Lebanon but Hafez al-Assad.
f**k the so-called Palestinians!
Peres and Rabin have acted stupidly in 1993-94! They should have liquidated Aratfat and his terror ring once and for good!

zionist vermin siding with terrorist? not surprise, the ghetto state started by terrorist attacks, lets not forget about the King David Hotel bombing perpetrated by Irgun, it was the zionist insects who brought terrorism over to the otherwise quiet life in the British Mandate for Palestine to force the creation of their apartheid state, this never changed as evidenced by direct support for ISIS AQ NUSRA across the Golan.
The zionist vermin has to be fumigated out of this earth, it is the only hope for peace on the middle east.

unfortunately Syria got forced to get rid of its stock of insecticide, whose sole mention kept the zionist cockroaches in check for decades and greatly balanced the equation with the ghetto state.
